A major frustration I have as a fan of the podcast technology is that most podcasters assume that I am going to listen through a website. What I want to do is have Amarok is download episodes for me.
To save other listeners from this frustration I am going to instruct you on how to find the appropriate RSS feed for podcast hosted via libsyn.
- Go to the archive page of the podcast’s website
- Look the address that the Direct Download link points to
- If it is something like traffic.libsyn.com/showname/episode.mp3 this tutorial is applicable.
- Enter into your podcast client showname.libsyn.com/rss where showname is the variation on the relevant podcast’s name from step 3
If I figure out the formula used by another syndication company I will write a follow up to this post.
